12-ounce bottle poured into a pint willi glass yields a hazy dark-brown body with red-amber highlights, capped with a finger of fine-bubbled ecru foam.The head reduces quickly to a ring and leaves thin scraps of lacing scattered on the glass.

The smell of the drink is sweet and malty with quite a bit of woody maple.

The taste of the drink is sweet and maple-syrupy with a touch of vanilla on a toasty malt backbone.

Smooth and on the syrupy-full side of medium-bodied, this is a nice brew and very drinkable despite the abv.
